The Tognis hold back fifty or so cases of their finest vintages to be released after a decade of aging. This year, it is the 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. For its price, purchasers will receive a complex Cabernet that is just approaching mid-adolescence. Its tastes are similar to a hybrid blend of a Pauillac and St.-Julien. Cedar wood, spice box, black currants, and tobacco leaf aromas soar from the glass of this aromatically exciting 1993. A dark plum/purple/garnet color reveals a touch of lightening at the edge. The wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with impressive purity as well as intensity. Already beautiful to drink, it should evolve for another 10-15 years.

Very much a beef stew of a Cabernet, showing spice, herb, beet and beef aromas, yet with enough elegant currant and a medley of cooked vegetables to hold your interest. Best to decant and then watch as this displays its range of tantalizing flavors.--1993 California Cabernet retrospective. 2,000 cases made.

Just past it's peak, although the color at the rim is still medium plum. Currant and smoke are the predominant flavors on the palate. Drink now.
